My style of work is collaborative and interactive. The people I work with, both individually and as couples, tell me my approach helps them feel safe and “feel heard”. May feel they have benefited from the integration of mindfulness techniques into our sessions.
I am an experienced and skilled therapist who continues to learn and grow both personally and professionally. I am a founding member of the NY Center for Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, an approach to working with couples that has research based outcome studies demonstrating proven effectiveness. My decision to specialize in couples therapy is based on a deep belief that people live, grow and heal in connection.
I have worked extensively with first responders and been successful in helping them overcome the stigma of seeking therapy. I am co-author of Healing Together: A Couple's Guide to Coping with Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress. www.healingaftertrauma.com
I am a Certified EFT Couples Therapist with a Masters and Doctorate degree in Social Work from NYU and CUNY. I am licensed in the state of New York. I have advanced training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Psychobiological Approach to Couples Treatment (PACT)
